Prior to working at PosAbility, Rob worked at the Lindamood-Bell Centre and has undergone their extensive training and mentoring program in all of the Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes over a period of three years. This provided a strong foundation for his development of expertise in planning and providing high quality educational intervention for children who are significantly behind in literacy and/or numeracy. At Lindamood Bell, Robbie achieved the position of mentor; a role which involves instructing other clinicians and analysing sessions to maximise their instructional effectiveness. He has since undergone further training through PosAbility and other professional development courses to broaden his knowledge of a wide range of effective and evidence-based methods in literacy and numeracy intervention for children with learning difficulties.
Rob brings his insight and experience as an educational consultant to his new learnings as a student of Psychology to all of his sessions. He has experience in working with children with Specific Learning Disorders, including Dyslexia (reading), Dysgraphia (writing) and Dyscalculia (Mathematics), as well as children with a range of special needs, including children with ADHD, Autism, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Developmental Coordination Disorder. Rob has an excellent ability to engage and motivate his students and this comes from his love of helping students increase their self-esteem through learning in a positive and relaxed environment. He is able to draw on his knowledge of the research to select evidence-based methods and programs to target a child’s individual needs.
